3.     We seek the Lord’s blessing for: … Steve Freuchtenicht, and Pastor Ed & Becca – who will both be traveling to visit family over Thanksgiving week; … those preparing, serving and delivering the meals of the 7th Street Feast, that all of those being served might find sustenance not only for their bodies, but also their spirits; … the School Endowment Fund, that it may continue to be wisely invested both for its growth and its service to our school; the closing of legal operation for Pin Oak Acres, that the blessing brought from its sale would continue to fund our mission for years to come; … the persecuted church – including believers worldwide (especially the 17 lay-missionaries still held captive in Haiti).

* Genesis 28:3 – “May God almighty bless you!”

4.   We raise up the ministry of the Gospel: … praying the Lord’s blessing over November’s “Mission of the Month,” assisting Lori Hall with medical expenses, your special donations to date total $3669; … lifting up those who have been nominated to leadership positions (Ed Dane, President; Steve Fruechtenicht, Vice President; Fred Berg & Sue Klotz, Ministry Directors) – that in all our congregational ministries (in addition to our School: Paul’s Buffet, the 7th Street Feast, our Facebook Live simulcast, the Community Garden, and more) the Lord would use them – and us – to bring people to know His saving grace.

       * Romans 1:16 – “The gospel … is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes.”

5.     We pray for our Nation: … as we pause to observe a National Day of Thanksgiving, recognizing the Lord’s rich blessing upon us (that we, in turn, would serve as a blessing to other nations and peoples – especially by sharing the Gospel with them); … asking the Lord’s care over our Armed Forces – especially those deployed in defense of our safety: Willie Williams, III (Germany); & Shelby Long (Iraq); Tiffany Bagi (UAE); … giving thanks for, and to, those men and women who have served both God and country in times of war and of peace.

 

* Psalm 121:8 – “The Lord will watch over your coming and going, both now and forevermore.”
